Teachers the blood and guts, the movers and shakers of TFOS Mux. Their primary responsibility lies in acting as the Referees for plots and scenes that involved PCs.
Teachers are also NPCs in their own right. When they are set to IC Duty, they can be interacted with as if they were any normal NPC. They all assume the names of Mr., Mrs., Ms., or Miss. as to be easily recognizable. Teachers also have the ability to run other NPCs, some of which may be public knowledge, some of which may not.
PCs wishing to become a Teacher must send a detailed resume to the Head of the Mux. LIst past experience with TFOS Mux or any other MU*, previous characters, code experience, and plot ideas that you wish to run. Being a Teacher is a very hard and difficult job that will require at least one plot per month to be run as well as random scenes. Applicants must have spent some time on TFOS prior to being accepted as a Teacher.
Counselors are Player Helpers, designated to assist PCs with any questions that they might have. The successful Counselor will have a good knowledge of the Mux's rules, news, and commands in order to assist new PCs. Having a great deal of patience and good communication skills helps as well.
Counselors are permitted to keep their normal PC.
Better known as BLDRs, these are the people who make and code the things that keep TFOS running smoothly. They have no power over Referee decisions or PCs, but they are pretty much free to build things as they wish to enhance the atmosphere of the Mux.
To become a BLDR, one must demonstrate an excellent knowledge of code.
Substitute Teachers are Faculty members whose purpose is to help run plots and scenes on the Mux. They are 'part-time' Faculty in that they have a PC as well as limited Faculty abilities - namely they can run plots while not being able to handle other Faculty duties.
Applicants wishing to become a Substitute Teacher must have played on TFOS for three months and have a copy of the TFOS rulebook. They will be required to run at least one plot a month in addition to at least two short scenes (random events) per month. When not running plots or scenes, Subs will be available to assist other Faculty in developing plots. Subs are required to enforce the TFOS theme while running a plot or scene.
Substitute Teachers are permitted to keep a PC, but they are not allowed to involve that PC in any plot or scene. They must also log off that PC to prevent conflict of interests and allow the Sub to keep their full attention on the task at hand. Subs will be allowed to award Teener Points, but are unable to adjust other Stats.
